HERO MOTHER: Contemporary Art by Post-Communist Women Rethinking Heroism is an international exhibition of 30 women artists from 20 countries, focusing on the role of gender, citizenship, nationalism, migration and personal freedom, as well as relations between artists and state structures. This exhibition looks at the ramifications of traditionalist political forces as they are unleashed upon women, the queer community and other minorities at a time of increasingly resurgent conservative values. The artists invited to take part in HERO MOTHER are contemporary women from places with communist legacies whose work addresses and defies, through a variety of media, the frighteningly regressive political agendas of many Eastern European countries today, outing this in the context of broader developments worldwide. HERO MOTHER is the sister exhibition to MOMENTUM’s 2015 show BALAGAN!!! Contemporary Art from the Former Soviet Union and Other Mythical Places.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a televised video selection on ikonoTV, a Book Launch of the HERO MOTHER Catalogue, and a SYMPOSIUM on 12 June. A full program of ancillary events will be forthcoming.
Vernissage: Friday, 13th May 2016, from 6 p.m, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Live performance by Nezaket Ekici: On The Way Safety And Luck
